Our entire professional community experienced a profound loss with the passing of IEEE Life Fellow John Meredith, whose many years of dedicated service to our organization, our profession, and his community set a standard of excellence in personal commitment. A lifetime member and dynamic volunteer, John joined IEEE as a student in 1960 and served as Region 5 Director in 2004 and 2005 and as IEEE-USA President in 2007. John was committed to sharing his passion for engineering and technology with the next generation and was active with the Accreditation Board for Engineering and Technology. As an ardent supporter of the IEEE Foundation, John served on its board of directors from 2006 to 2014. For his efforts and dedication, John was named a director emeritus of the Foundation’s Board of Directors in 2015. Many IEEE members were drawn into IEEE volunteer service due to John’s encouragement and inspiration and he served as a trusted mentor to many of us who have become leaders and active contributors in the IEEE.
